A Message from the President



March 15-17, 2018
Post-graduate Course - March 14

DRS Colleagues, the 26th Annual Meeting of the Dysphagia Research Society is only 6 months away, and we can now give you a glimpse at what’s in store for those attending.

Post-Graduate Course
March 14

Intuition, Decision and Precision:

The Role of Clinical Reasoning, Expertise & Big Data in Predicting and Managing Dysphagia

You do not want to miss this course!

Our morning session will explore the art and science of intuition and the impact clinical reasoning and expertise have on everyday clinical decision-making. Join us as we explore our minds and how we navigate patient care. In the afternoon, we will explore the rapidly growing field of precision medicine and how big data can be used to help us make big decisions about individual care by exploring the impact of genes, environment and lifestyle on disease risk and dysphagia.

Didactic presentations for each session will be followed by clinical grand rounds, where experts will break down their decision-making process with challenging cases. We are finalizing an exceptional line-up of faculty to provide new insights into how we think and why we can predict a brighter future for our patients.

And back by popular demand…we will have an afternoon concurrent session focused on building successful research careers for Early Investigators.

Main Course Overview
March 15-17
